New Delhi. In a match of IPL 2022, Kolkata Knight Riders competed with Rajasthan Royals. In this match held at Brabourne Stadium, Rajasthan Royals scored 217 runs while batting first, which was the highest score of this season. Jos Buttler scored the second century of this season for Rajasthan and then on the basis of Yuzvendra Chahal’s hat-trick, Kolkata were all out for 210 runs with two balls remaining and KKR lost the match by 7 runs. There was also a time in this match, when KKR captain Venkatesh Iyer lost his cool and got angry on Venkatesh Iyer batting together in the middle of the field. Its video is going viral on social media.
This incident happened in the 16th over of Kolkata Knight Riders’ innings. This over was bowled by fast bowler Trent Boult. Venkatesh Iyer was facing the last ball of his over. Venkatesh played this ball towards backward point and the ball went fast to the fielder. After completing one run fast, Shreyas ran fast for the second. But Shimron Hetmyer threw a strong throw towards the striker’s end. Seeing this, Venkatesh refused Shreyas for the second run. Somehow Shreyas saved his wicket by running back. After this Shreyas got up and started scolding Venkatesh in front of everyone in the middle of the field.
Unfortunately, Shreyas Iyer fell victim to Yuzvendra Chahal on the first ball of the very next over. He was dismissed lbw by Chahal.

Iyer played a brilliant innings of 85 runs
Iyer scored 85 runs in 51 balls. In this innings, he hit 7 fours and 4 sixes. But he could not make the team win. But at one point it seemed that KKR would easily win this match. Team’s opener Aaron Finch scored 58 runs in 28 balls and Shreyas Iyer also made a quick fifty. There was a partnership of 106 runs for the second wicket between Finch and Iyer. However, Iyer was dismissed in the 17th over.
Shreyas had an argument with the coach
The disappointment of being dismissed was clearly visible on Iyer’s face. As soon as he reached the dugout, he was seen getting angry at coach Brendon McCullum. This video of him is going viral on social media.

It seemed that Iyer was not happy with the team’s batting order. Because the team management had sent Shivam Mavi to bat before Sheldon Jackson. Shreyas looked really desperate. Because despite their good start, their team has rolled down the points table after losing four out of seven games.
